      I can appreciate what you have tried to do here, but I think it would have been more useful to have a more rounded discussion on why the solution is architected as it is and installed as you have laid out here. SAP do provide a solid set of installation documents which I have found to be quite adequate and easily supplemented with documents/wikis as you have done. The issue with documents like yours is that they are usually only useful for a handful of installations until the SWPM tool gets updated, the best way to guard against this type of obsolescence is to provide a richer blog discussing why you select options during your installation.

      Dear Said Shepl,

      We are planning to migrate (OS) from WIN SRV 2008 to WIN SRV 2012 R2 using Export/Import Method.

      Our Current DB is ASE 15.7 and Target DB will be 16.0.

      We also want SAP clustering to be installed and Configured in our PROD environment to make it zero downtime.

      Could you please guide us with the steps we need to follow to make it success.

      Thanks in advance...
